I thought this would be a perfect start to our evening of theatre, with the perfect setting and atmosphere I (wrongly) expected a quality meal. Unfortunately the only thing good about The Vaults is the service, albeit, a little inexperienced. The food was dull, bland, tasteless, uninteresting and poorly presented. Almost what you would expect in a local canteen. The menu was very restricted, only a few items to chose from, which doesn't usually bother me, as this usually is an indication that the quality of food will be high, wrong! It's such a shame as they could make this place so much more that it is. They have the perfect setting to provide a wonderful experience for theatre goers, or even those who want to enjoy the surroundings.

The Theatre Royal Bath is everything that you would expect in a city such a Bath, the Vaults Restaurant is a different, A real "Curate's Egg" The waiting staff friendly & enthusiastic even if appearing a little inexperienced ,the food? as a number of people have mentioned, the portions are to say the least VERY MEAN, think main courses as starter size, & if you have the Mackerel fillet dish as I did think Sardine(& you only get 1 "Fillet"). The venue however is outstanding , finally should you have a meal there it is easier to pay by card as mental arithmetic in some you staff is not their strong point!

6 of us went to Vaults restaurant before seeing Full Monty at Bath Theatre Royal. We chose it initially as weather was VERY wet and it meant we were going to stay dry after dinner. We had a lovely meal with excellent service and an reasonably priced Prosecco to get us inn the mood! lots of atmosphere and staff very efficient. Altogether a very good experience

We came to Bath for the day. I have many happy child hood memories of the Vaults pre theatre. We came to eat not to watch the panto. The ambience is lovely, the staff very pleasant, the wine excellent and the food appalling. Think small portions and jar sauces and you have it. Yuck. What a shame.

We enjoyed a pre-theatre meal here recently. The meal was enjoyable but not outstanding. The service was excellent and the surroundings lovely and cosy, although a little cramped in places. Good atmosphere too - the only real problem was the coffee, which was very weak and not of the quality you'd expect given the price and location. Overall a good hassle-free choice for pre-theatre dining.
